Greenville Health System (GHS) provides integrated health care to communities across Greenville County and beyond through our Patient Referral and Transfer Center at Greenville Memorial Hospital. The center is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week to serve as a centralized point of entry for transfers into GHS from area hospitals and healthcare providers. (This service is for use by medical facilities and practices only. Consumers seeking an appointment with a GHS provider should call 1-844-GHS-DOCS (447-3627).
You have direct communication with one of our Registered Nurses who have extensive experience in critical care, cardiology and pediatrics, to coordinate the logistics of the transfer and admission.
The R.N. who takes your call will communicate pertinent clinical and plan of care information through regular updates to the referring physician. Coordination of the transfer to GHS can include finding an appropriate physician within GHS, facilitating a physician to physician phone contact between the referring MD and the accepting GHS MD, assuring an appropriate bed is available, notifying appropriate ancillary staff of the transfer and coordinating transportation if requested. For STEMI (acute heart attack) patients the RNs also activate the STEMI alert and take report to streamline the process for these emergency situations. To keep the lines of communication open, Referral Center staff will make follow-up courtesy calls 30 days after discharge to the referring physician or other entities.
Our goal is to make things as easy as possible for you and your patient.
Simply call either (864) 455-0000 or 877-599-8867 and a member of our team will assist you through the process.
We will connect you with the appropriate physician and get your patient to GHS as quickly and smoothly as possible.
